Lincoln Central Library, Lincoln, Lincolnshire

Lincoln Central Library, Lincoln, Lincolnshire

The public library in the historic city of Lincoln is a very special place.

The first lending library opened its doors near the end of the 19th century, in 1895, and operated from the Assembly Rooms building in the centre of the city. It was replaced by the new site on Free School Lane in 1914.

The library was refurbished and revamped during the 1990s, funding for various artworks was provided from the National Lottery through the Arts Council of England and these artworks are on permanent display throughout the building.

The library also houses the Tennyson Research Centre, in the dome, and is the most significant collection on Alfred Tennyson in the world.

There are thousands of books on offer, spanning fiction, non-fiction and children, and staff are helpful and well informed.

Opening times: Mon, Tue, Wed 9am - 5pm, Thu 9am - 6pm, Fri 9am - 5pm, Sat 9am - 4pm, Sun Closed
